Increased in Container volumes : We currently own 8500 containers compared to 6944 containers in FY18. The current large size enables us to cater to customers with huge container load, thereby increasing scope of services. We have been able to fund these largely through internal accruals, thereby improving revenues while maintaining our balance-sheet quality.
EBIDTA in Q4FY19 at Rs. 4.01 crores is marginally lower YoY vs Rs.4.59 crores in the previous corresponding quarter. EBIDTA Margins at 5.9 % were impacted by additional number of new business initiatives started in the 4QFY19 and expenses for shifting to new premises as well.
PAT (Profit after Tax): The Q4 profits were muted mostly due to the initial funding of new initiatives and setting up offices across India. In addition to this, higher depreciation and interest costs also impacted PAT. For the full year, FY19 the PAT at Rs.8.25 crores, was up 20.3% YoY higher.
